My son loves it

My 7 year old can be sensitive to dark themes and scary build-ups, and I was worried that this show might be too much for him. But he genuinely loves it. It teaches him about myths from different cultures and is equal parts silly and, in his words, "Kinda weird". I'd encourage parents to watch an episode or two with their kids and maybe use it as a spring board for discussion about cool mythological creatures. The episodes I have seen with him all encourage working together, not making assumptions about people, and finding your inner strength.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4):
Kids say (2):

This animated series is a fun standout among tween-geared cartoons, featuring a Mexican main character who learns to accept himself and celebrate his differences. Leo begins the story in a predicament that's familiar to many kids (and perhaps adults): feeling the need to hide the fact that there's something unusual about him for fear of what others will think. It's only when he comes to accept his uniqueness that he's able to step up and help his neighbors and his community and realize his full potential.

That said, Legend Quest's monsters can be pretty scary. And the idea that, in many cases, they're out for total human domination or annihilation is a dark and potentially overwhelming concept for younger viewers . Most kids in this show's target audience likely can handle this kind of content, but it's worth checking it out first for more sensitive viewers before giving them the OK. On the upside, rooting the enjoyable show in Mexican folklore, as well as exploring other cultures and myths around the world, could inspire kids' interest in related topics.
